Amos chapter five continues to call spiritually compromised and sterile leaders and congregations to turn their self-awareness and appropriation into a genuine love for the righteousness of Christ Jesus, and to return to a principled and knowledgable practice of Biblical fidelity. Amos still beckons the capable and influential to do right by the wounded and disadvantaged, and more importantly, to do right by God who in His mercy has called us His own. He says, “Seek good, and not evil, that you may live; and so the Lord, the God of hosts, will be with you. Seek Him and live.”
Regardless of the obstacles of time, passage, and language, Joel chapter two still calls those who are overwhelmed by the great human struggle and tragic circumstances of life to seek remedy and hope through the regenerative love and power of Creator God. Joel’s words remain a profound “go to” perspective on the presence of God, and the downloading of the Holy Spirit into the lives of those who sincerely and humbly seek Him. He says, “And, it will come to pass, everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Join us as we seek full understanding and engagement in what God is doing in our day. We seek we find, we pray we hear, we study we learn. Our families and those we love depend on this. There is indeed a movement, urgent and intense; a righteous revolution going on around the world. From the beginning, to the end, to the new beginning of a world without end – the movement has always been to God and His Word.
